Headquartered in Kunovice, Czechoslovakia, Hame is a major food processor and packager that markets a range of shelf-stable and chilled foods both within its own borders and to about 35 other countries.

Approximately 40 percent of the company’s gross sales are represented by exports to other countries.

In July 2010, Hame launched its Hamanek brand of shelf-stable, ready-to-eat, baby food fruit snack products packaged in barrier plastic cups. The fruit snacks are produced at Hame’s facility in Podivin, Czechoslovakia.

To accommodate these products, Hame selected a PP/EVOH/PP translucent cup structure manufactured by EDV Packaging at EDV’s plant in Barcelona, Spain. The EVOH barrier layer shields against ingress of oxygen, moisture, UV rays, and aromas, and enables non-refrigerated, flavor-protecting product shelf life for up to 12 months.

The 130-g cups feature smooth sidewalls. Transparent, high-barrier peelable top film is hermetically thermo-sealed to the cup lip. A recloseable plastic overcap then is applied to each cup.

Hame is marketing the products in two-packs. The paperboard carton sleeves, offset-printed in six colors, are supplied by Bauch Navratil.
